Necco goes with song
in their hearts

Boomer love songs have been memorialized on this year's Conversation Hearts. These are the candy valentines that have been a tradition of the season since 1902.

The original "Be Mine" and "Be True" are joined this Valentine's by "Love Me Tender," "My Way," "I Got U Babe," "Let it Be" and "Walk on By." Also added are phrases of the '90s: "You Rock," "Let's Do Lunch," "I Wonder," "1-800 Cupid" and "As If."

Each year, Walter Marshall, president of the New England Confectionery Co., which makes Conversation Hearts, selects a few new sayings for the candies. In past years he's added "E-mail Me" and "You Go Girl." Phrases must be inoffensive, and they must be short. Very short.

NECCO's three factories work all year to produce the 8 billion hearts that sell out in about six weeks.
